KOK WGP 2012 Results: Dorel Wins Tournament, Tutu Beats Braan

The KOK WGP 2012 Lightweight tournament took place today in Chisinau, Moldova, featuring a one night, eight man tournament at 71kg as well as a fight between two of LiverKick's top 10 at light heavyweight.

The quarter finals started off with Dongu Kim, Mateusz Kopiec, Cristian Dorel and Eyevan Danenberg all winning by decision, setting the semi finals up for Dongu Kim vs. Mateusz Kopiec and Cristian Dorel vs. Eyevan Danenberg. Kopiev defeated Kim by decision and Dorel scored the lone KO win of the tournament, with a knee to the body of Danenberg in the second round. In the final, Cristian Dorel won a decision over Mateusz Kopiec, winning the tournament for the second year in a row.

Two LiverKick Top 10 light heavyweights faced off as Constantin Tutu met Sem Braan. It was a very close fight that probably could've gone to an extra round but Tutu was given the decision victory. It was rather disappointing though for Tutu, as his cardio was not very good and he was noticeably tired, especially in the third round. In order to really establish himself, Tutu will need to start fighting outside of these KOK events in Moldova and improve his cardio dramatically.

Wondering what Daniel Ghita's been up to lately?

By now we all know that Daniel Ghita is no longer in the K-1 Final 16 and while no one is 100% sure on what his next move is, the speculation is that he'll go to Glory. So while it seems that as of right now, everything is in limbo for him, everyone is probably wondering what Daniel Ghita's been up to lately.

Well, he's still training, that's for sure. Tyson Fury, one of the top heavyweight boxers in the world, sporting a 19-0 record and standing 6'9"/206cm tall has been at Superpro Sportscenter quite a bit lately, sparring with the likes of Rico Verhoeven and none other than Daniel Ghita himself.

Aside from training, Ghita's also been working on his golf game from the looks of it. If I ran a golf course, I wouldn't refuse Daniel Ghita admission for wearing jeans and sneakers either.

So while everyone's wondering what Daniel Ghita's been doing lately, it seems like he's just living life normally, and looking pretty happy, too.
